Some interesting quotes:
"The good news is? the new guy will have a loaded deck talent wise and we should be in the hunt immediately."
"I still believe Notre Dame is very relevant"
"Charlie is a good man"
The talent level is not as good as tom lemming would have you think. Did you see their defense? I know a bad defense when I see one, since we've been watching one here for the last 2 years. Aside from that kid from hawaii, who is talented on their defense? They might have a talented offense, if clausen and tate return. But that is unlikely. Their second string QB is going to be recovering from major knee surgery, and the entire team will be learning new schemes and language. So I don't see how anyone could predict them being in the hunt for much of anything in the next couple of years.
Highschool Juniors are 16 or 17. Meaning that ND has only won a single bowl game in their entire lives. Their last 4 coaches (including O'leary) have combined for and each averaged just over a .500 winning percentage. And that's while playing the service academies every year and getting repeatedly blown out by teams that finish in the top ten. Weis never beat anyone that finished in the top 20.
Charlie is an arrogant, two-faced, spineless hypocrite who is a disgrace to humanity and should not be viewed as a role model for anyone. To hell with Charlie Weis.
